Norbu is a fabulous new granulated natural alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. It's made from monk fruit, also known as luo han guo in China, where it has been used as a sweetener and in herbal remedies for centuries. It’s 300 times sweeter than sugar, so only a very small amount is needed.
For this reason it's mixed with erythritol, a sugar alcohol, to make it spoon for spoon substitutable with sugar.
You can happily substitute it into all your favourite sweet recipes, including baked goods. At only 0.5 calories per teaspoon, it means your sweet dishes can now be part of your healthy weight loss program.
I love it because it doesn’t have that distinctive bitter after taste that other sugar substitutes have. Norbu can be used to substitute sugar or other sugar alternatives in many of your favourite recipes. Here are a few of ours using Norbu.
